I know that the end of the day can feel like a whirlwind of activities, sometimes chaotic, and maybe even completely unmanageable for you and your family.
I also know that the end of the day can be a time of deep connection and joy, where you have a daily anchor to talk, share, and just be together.
What is this anchor I speak of? Family mealtime!Leave a comment
I’m so happy to share this episode of Yoga Stories Project with you! I loved talking to Brian Leaf.
He’s a funny, insightful, and just plain real guy using the tools of yoga to live well and share with others.Leave a comment
Enjoy this guest blog post about one mama’s mindful mornings by Meg Devine! -Hunter
* * *
I have made waking up in the early hours of the morning a habit. I have come to crave quiet, uninterrupted time, recharged by a night of sleep and stimulated by the daily ritual of percolating hot dark coffee filling a thick clay mug.
I welcome the day with slow and quiet anticipation.
I live a very busy life, rich and full, rarely quiet. I am the mother of four children, the oldest eight, and the youngest now two. Both my husband and I work outside of our home. I have a career in education presently with a role as a kindergarten teacher in the community in which I live. My husband and I also both work at home, managing a small homestead, crafting a life with our children close to the earth and connected as a family.Leave a comment
When I got my first iphone a few years ago, I was wary. I knew that people got sucked in…
Then I got sucked in. Read the Times on an early morning car trip? Yes! Check email at the playground? Yes! Words with friends while on the toilet? Yes!
Pretty soon I could feel the difference. My mind felt fuzzy. I was in my own head a lot. I wasn’t paying attention to my life as much. I was distracted.Leave a comment
Do you feel like you don’t have enough time? When someone asks how you are, is your answer, “busy?”
Too many of us are feeling overwhelmed. Especially mamas.
When my husband and I decided to start a family, we knew that we wanted our home to be a peaceful place – a refuge. We both remembered all the time we had as kids. We envisioned our child exploring the patch of woods across the street. Just remembering, we could feel that magic spaciousness of childhood.
But now many children don’t have that kind of time & space.Leave a comment
